Old Oak Tree in Boise's North End

No yellow ribbon tied around this old oak tree, but there is a yellowed sign. This is one of the huge trees in Boise's North End. You'll find this one near Hyde Park, and it's the only one I've seen with a note on it. I like the bark on this white oak, it looks like layers of frosting. Here are the plaque and bark up close....
I like to imagine that Joseph Woods was a boy when he planted the tree in 1897.


  1. That photo is great, and thank you for sharing with us.

  2. Amazing...
    And the best is that now there are more admirers of this wonderful tree through your blog.
    Good work.
